Unita helps you discover Europe in a different way by setting up an international mobility programme in rural areas.
In this way, Unita wishes to promote the professionalisation of students while participating in the development of the territories of the alliance, which are largely rural and mountainous.
Aimed mainly at students and young graduates aged 18 to 28, international volunteering is an enriching professional experience, a real springboard for an international career.
Being an international volunteer means going on a professional mission abroad while benefiting from a protective public status: the International Volunteer (IV) is placed under the supervision of the French Embassy.
From 6 to 24 months, the missions can concern all the trades and be carried out :
- within a French public structure under the authority of the MAEE or the Ministry of the Economy and Finance
- in a local foreign public structure
- with international organizations or approved associations.
The VIE is not a voluntary service: the VIs receive a fixed monthly allowance, which varies according to the country of assignment.
